About the event

PLOHO is a post-punk / new-wave band formed in 2013 in Novosibirsk, a major industrial center of Siberia. The band focused on a particular lo-fi sound that derives both from their passion to Soviet and British new-wave of the 80-s and the lack of resources and absence of proper studio equipment. This resolved to the appearance of a particular type of sound afterwards borrowed and thought of by many other bands from different post-soviet countries.

The band combines the cold and loneliness of a Siberian industrial megapolis with traditional post-punk, adding the stories of hopelessness and pointlessness of struggling with a police state, at times with irony and sometimes with a glimpse of hope. Ploho romanticizes the life of a common man living in an old block building next door. The band sings of an unremarkable life of this ordinary guy that is nostalgic of the 90-00 with its VWS and tape cassettes.

In 2020, Ploho joined Artoffact Records and their songs featured in the Lithuanian film 'Isaak,' which was submitted for an Oscar. Amidst the recording of their final album, 'When the Soul Sleeps,' the Russian invasion of Ukraine deeply influenced their music. By summer 2022, the album was finished at 'Melodiya' studio, prompting the band to relocate to Belgrade, Serbia.
